3 C oats
½ C Moxie Nosh Trail Mix Butter
¼ C MCT oil
½ C Dried Unsweetened Fruit (we used cherries)

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl combine ¼ C MCT oil and Tail Mix Butter.  Start mixing in 3 cups of  oats and dried fruit. After everything is combines, pour onto a cookie sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes. For a crispier finish turn on the broiler for a few minutes to get an extra golden brown color.

One Pot Curry Cashew Chicken

Main Ingredients:

2 pounds chicken, cubed or if using bone in add about ½ lb
1 onion chopped
5 cloves of garlic
14 oz can fire roasted diced tomatoes
Chicken stock, veggie broth, or miso soup (one carton is plenty)

Sauce:

2 Tbsp curry powder (more if using paste)
14 oz can coconut milk
1” piece of ginger
1/2c Moxie Nosh cashew butter
2 Tbsp soy sauce or alternative
2 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

Garnish:

Cilantro
Lime wedges
Chili oil or hot sauce

Add chicken, onion, garlic, and tomatoes to your crock pot. Puree together the curry powder, coconut milk, ginger, cashew butter, soy sauce, and vinegar. Stir the mixture with other ingredients in the crock pot. Cook on low 6-8 hours or on high 3-5 hours. Add in extra stock as needed. If your family prefers a thinner soup consistency use more, for a thicker sauce use less! This dish can be made stovetop, or even with grilled or roasted chicken. Serve with rice or a salad. The possibilities are endless.
